    It's not that they are tough. I get bored easily and I am still trying to find the optimum revison techniques for me. I've tried loads but none that actually keep me entertained.

    My favourite was Chemistry, mainly because of the experiments with the mad looking apparatus!

    I would have to say biology:
    This is because I find the content challenging but also really interesting at the same time because you can relate a lot of it to everyday life. Also my teachers use to pick on my a lot and talk down to me which encouraged me to really work to spite them
    I have a place now to study Biomedical Science at university which I am looking forward to

    Physics...our lessons are full of experiments. I don't think we've even once made notes.
    One time we used a popcorn machine to mimic radioactive decay :lol:

    Gotta be Mathematics! Everything's just so logical and it's just awesome when you can do a 10 marker in M3!

    The thing that annoys me most about A-levels is the markscheme culture, basically if its not on the markscheme, its not valuable? what kind of **** is that, that is the one thing I think they should change, be more open to other ideas than just what they decided to print one day. But the markschemes for maths are very accurate as there is one right answer, unlike explanatory subjects

    I honestly loved all my A2 subjects/ Spanish bc I love the language and we had a great teacher so classes were always fun. Religion because it was interesting/I love essay based subjects and geography because I loved the case studies and found it easy/a lot of it to be common sense.

    That sounds very funny I guess your teacher was very inventive, wasn't he? and what was his/her explanation in terms of a popcorn machine?

    I know Haha yes, he's even patented this microwave invention thing

    It was just to show the random nature of radioactive decay lol. Very educational :rolleyes: The best bit was eating the leftover popcorn

    He's also made us this wooden board with a 'nucleus' and balls flying everywhere just so we could understand the Rutherford's scattering experiment :L And we did some electronic work to make a mini Geiger counter :lol: Plus some experiments with dry ice and we even went on the field so he could show us the explosion of his 'bomb'. And countless other little experiments, it's been a fun year xD

    It's so sad he's leaving though

    Biology, because you can get away with revising the night before the exam, and still get an A.
